Stripped from the recently signed stimulus package, the E-Verify mandate would have required all employers using federally mandated funds to run their employees through the E-Verify program. Just before the bill was given to President Obama, the mandate was stripped.
E-Verify would have been an excellent assurance that jobs that are available are given to legal, authorized workers. In these hard times, it is hard to believe more protections for American jobs were not considered more seriously.
